    Obviously the Lexington cop wasn't trained well enough to fire back. These kind of criminals need to be placed in the (edited).

    What is the rest of the story? Why was he firing shots? Sad thing is he won't even get a slap on his wrist because he is a juvenile. Just imagine what crime he will be into as an adult.

    Where did this juvenile get a gun at in the first place? I hope the justice system doesn't let him off because it will send the wrong message to other juveniles! The law needs to be tougher on these youngsters so that they will not become lawless citizens. It's a sad day when children are allow to roam the streets at night doing whatever they wish. Two young boys in my neighborhood ages 6 and 7 roam the streets until 10 or 11 nightly. One is the son of a single mother and the other is living with his grandparents. These two boys have destroyed property and been cruel to animals and no ones will do anything, not even the law! They have to be caught in the act however by the time the law arrives the boys are gone! So if these 2 start shooting at others, who's fault is it? I cannot blame the boys, they are doing what they are allowed to do by those who are supposed to be caring for them. It's sad to see children turn loose to destroy themselves and others.

    I searched several of the local news agency websites and this was the first to report on what had happened in south lexington tonight. I knew it had to be something major as I saw many of the lexinton police officers streaking around manowar. I will check this site first on local news from now on.
